The aim of the three-year project DaSKITA is the design and prototypical implementation of AI-based concepts, mechanisms and tools which enable consumers to obtain a higher level of awareness and self-determination in the context of data-driven services. Transparency and the right of access have always been an integral part of privacy / data protection regulations: to be able to act in a sovereign and self-determined way in everyday digital life, consumers need to know “who knows what, when, and on what occasion about them" (BVerfG 65, 1). In practice, however, both – the exercise of such rights as well as the actual understanding of provided information – are subject to prohibitive hurdles for consumers who are are, basically existing rights notwithstanding, usually not sufficiently informed to actually act in a sovereign and self-determined manner in everyday digital life. In close cooperation between computer science, legal and socio-political research as well as corporate practice, specific, AI-based technologies for the low-effort exercise of transparency and access rights, for simplified reception of appropriate information and its machine-readable provision by service providers are to be developed in the project DaSKITA. Thus, a sustainable contribution to consumer sovereignty in everyday digital life can be achieved. Following a concept of “privacy engineering” that goes well beyond mere data minimization and security, this shall provide a significant contribution to the technically mediated fulfillment of the requirements given by, in particular, the GDPR (“privacy/data protection by design”). The Department of Information Systems Engineering (ISE) at TU Berlin is the consortium lead and focuses on questions of the formal representation, machine-readable provision, and AI-based extraction of transparency information from privacy policies, the AI-supported exertion of the right of access, and the user-side presentation of respective information. Further project partners areiRights.lab and Dilecy. The project is supported by funds of the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection (BMJV) based on a decision of the Parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany via the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE) under the innovation support program.
